Q.

We are looking for low cost conveyancing. What should be watch out for?

A.

Numerous solicitors purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement that unknowing property buyers and sellers have not reviewed Any disbursements should be included on a Roath conveyancing quote

Q.

I plan to purchase a medieval barn conversion in the parish of Port Eynon. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the building being purchased is found. Chancel repair may be apportioned on new owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

What amount of time should we account for the legal work to purchase a home usually need in Roath?

A.

For the majority of home buyers, the time needed to buy or sell a residence is not wholly predictable, dependent on potentially many issues affecting the property, such as if a property is leasehold or freehold. Eight to twelve weeks is the industry-wide average, whereas our solicitors drive the process forwards, completing within eight weeks.

Q.

Doing ones own conveyancing without the help of a Roath conveyancer appears to be becoming possible when buying and selling a maisonette. Would it really be a good economy ?

There are no reasons why a buyer cant do the legal process unaided.

In reality however, a Roath conveyancer typically handles a large array of actions ranging from chasing mortgage offer and communicating with managing agents most of which need training. Nonetheless legal practices are duty bound to take out acceptable indemnity cover to safeguard you from any professional carelessness.

Q.

What particular searches does a lawyer in Roath order when buying a Roath home?

A.

The conventional legal procedure will be to obtain the following Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and perhaps less common searches, which may include a Company Searches.

Q.

We are anxious about the council tax charges on a Thirties end of terrace property in Roath, what are they?

A.

Q.

I am shortly going to be finally moving from our detached home just outside Roath to our next home in Radyr , at what stage to choose a home removal firm?

A.

Your solicitor would tend to advocate that you wait arranging removals until the point where formal exchange of contracts has been notified as in all probability an absolute date wont have been firmed up. Why not try Chapman Of Cardiff, Connies House Rhymney River Bridge Road, Cardiff, CF23 9AF Call: 029 20492063 or Chapman Of Cardiff, Connies House/Rhymney River Bridge Rd, Cardiff, CF23 9AF Telephone: 029 2049 2063.

Q.

I have requested a quote from you. Could I be billed any extra costs when the purchase completed?

A.

It is unfortunate that buyers must be on their guard for considerable extra costs hidden in small print. We do not charge any hidden extra charges. Sometimes a separate piece of work is also advised, like a will, but you will be made aware of any fees relating to this.
